Programs to view RAW other than LR 3 years 10 months ago #3210

I have LR but sometimes i want to view a RAW file on my pc without opening LR. Is there a free program i can download just to view the photo by double clicking the file? thanks

Hi there,

I know there is a (32 bit) program for windows to open Canon RAW files in Windows Viewer. Its a sort of codec which you can install.

Just type in a search on google and i think there will be a couple of programs which can do.

But! I want to point out that you are shooting RAW for a reason. RAW is an uncompromised, uneddited image which will come straight out of your camera. If you really want to review them first before taking them into post processing, i will suggest that you shoot JPEG & RAW.

Good luck.

Greetings,
Roy
